Our sponsors are the lifeline to the horses and donkeys that call Mea Ola's Place home. The equids may be here a month... or a year... or more...waiting for their forever family. Some may never get a family of their own! This is why we implemented the various programs that make us unique. These rescues can be useful and happy whether being rehabbed while in transition to a new home or whether they stay here for life. "One life at a time" is our motto. Would you like to help sponsor a life? Email us at or contact Ann at 661 557 2680 for more information. Most of the stories of those needing sponsors, shown on this page, are already posted. Just click on their name to go to their page. Some stories are yet to come.
A partial sponsorship begins at just $25 a month. When a particular horse or donkey reaches the goal of monthly upkeep, they are taken off this list. A general (full) sponsorship for a horse is $150 a month and $75 for a donkey. That only covers feed and farrier visits. Some horses require medications to manage them (Cushing's, IR, arthritis, etc.) so they may have a higher monthly need. Emergencies and other costs are generally able to be covered by the rescue or fundraising and the need is always there for that. Please consider becoming a sponsor or member. Memberships (contributors) can help to cover general expenses and emergencies. Even $10 a month DOES contribute and make a difference. All donations are tax deductible.
